In the latest issue of Nature Reports Climate Change, we have a round-up by Amanda Leigh Mascarelli of some of the major breakthroughs in climate science in 2008. This is a just a pick of the top five; there are of course others we could have mentioned. Also listed are those issues where large gaps remain in our knowledge, such as how fast Greenland is melting, or on which agreement has yet to be reached, such as where to stabilize atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
